Hey Purely Fit Friend!

We’ve got a new purely training workout for you. Another low-impact routine that is an upper body circuit.

Upper body circuit workout using equalizer

We use an equalizer for this workout.  BUT if you do not have one,  no worries as we provide details in the video of what you can do instead, which you will need free weights if possible.

 Get yourself an equalizer and save some money – use this code at checkout P2RTEQ20. We do have an affiliation with them, so if you purchase through our link Purely Twins gets a small percentage of your purchase at no extra cost to you. Thank you for you support in advance!!

Even though this is not as intense as some of our other purely training online workouts – it will still burn your upper body. Your heart rate will be pumping by the end.

We love to incorporate some strength training low-impact (meaning no jumping) workouts in our fitness routines. To burn and work our muscles in a different way!

When we first started using our equalizers we noticed immediately how it changed our workouts. How it increased the intensity. How it worked our whole body on a completely different level. We were hooked! See more of our equalizer workouts. If you are new to using one check out our video of building it.

We took some of our favorite moves to work the upper body to do in this workout. And to challenge ourselves more we used the equalizer. Tricep dips is one of our favorites to do on it.  Tricep dips are great for toning the back of the arms.

This upper body circuit will strengthen your abs, chest, arms and shoulders.

When using an equalizer you use your own bodyweight as resistance  It allows the user full control over the amount of bodyweight used for a given exercise. The result is greater muscle endurance and strength.

We’ve seen those hanging ab raises that people do at the gym and have always wanted to do one. Our equalizer allows us to do it in our home! Love that.  We love being able to use our equalizer to work the body in different ways. By using our own bodyweight for the workout it is amazing how intense it can be.

Again, if you don’t have an equalizer we suggest using free weights for resistance and a chair for the tricep dips.

Here is your workout breakdown:

Fitness levels variations we suggest:

  • A-fits (advanced peeps) : Use an equalizer if you have one. If not, use moderate-heavy weights for the back rows and squat to shoulder raise. Use a chair for the tricep dips and use weights for lower ab raises on the floor.
  • B-fits (beginner peeps):  Use a light weight or just your body weight for the back rows and squat to shoulder raise. Use a chair for the tricep dips (or on the floor) and do lower ab raises on the floor.
